How can I reducing -Xmx memory of Java from 1024M to 512M?

Hello Everyone,


Since last week the service BlackBerry MDS Connection Service won't start anymore.

I tried many options to solve the problem but without any result. Now I find out the virtual memory
of the server is to low. So I want to reduce the memory of xmx to 512mb. I read many articles about
this topic but not how to change xmx. Can somebody help me please?


Thanks in advance.
